0292 - Roles. - 2023.05.08



Yes, the "let's roleplay as each other" bit is a thing I've done before. What can I say, I liked how it turned out with Jamie and Ellen. Let's see how Lee and Zoa handle it.

Zoa: Okay, so our question is: what qualities did Plato possess that made Socrates want to put them next in line?
LC: "Why did Socrates like Plato?", yeah.
Doc: Mm, not quite. "Liking" someone is not necessarily the same thing as approving of them as a student or as a successor.
LC: Nngh, I dunno. Is this going to be disruptive? I don't want to be disruptive, that's apparently a big thing.
Zoa (sitting down): Here, y'know what? Let's roleplay. Doc, you pretend to be Mezzer Twofeather, I'll be me, providing emotional support, and Lee, you ask your question in a non-disruptive way.
Doc: Oh, I quite like this. Yes, by all means, let's practice.
LC: Um... actually, Zoa, can you roleplay as me and I'll be you? Just so I can see how it's done.
Zoa: Sure, I think I can do a passable Lee Caldavera impression. Doc - pontificate about Greek stuff!
Doc: Alright, are we ready?
LC: Ready.
Zoa: Ready.
Doc: ... ahem ... and, as you can see, Socrates had a lasting effect on the foundations of modern thought.
Zoa Ooh!
Doc: Mm, yes, Mezzer Caldavera?
Zoa: Uh... gosh, I had a question, but I'm too overwhelmed with emotion right now to ask it!
LC: Yes, yes, your services are indispensable, we get it...
